Another week has flown by...can you believe it??? It's going to be 2014 before we know it :-S
A friend of ours is leaving for Australia tomorrow for a year. She was Ryan's girlfriend when they were 15/16 but has always been in our lives since they broke up. She and Nicole are great friends and there was a surprise going away party for her on Sunday. I popped down after making her card to say good bye. I'm thinking I really really REALLY like it lol.
I printed Valentine Billy quite a bit smaller than the last cards I made and colored her in with my Copics. I treated myself to a few things after selling most of my SU! stamp sets and Sizzix dies...a MFT scallop border die, colored twine and MME's My Girl paper pad...it is utterly gorgeous, the colors scrumptious. I saw the LO here and loved the card Jen made...especially the doodling and after coloring Billie and paper piecing the balloons had a go myself. A bit stupid really if it all went pear shape lol. Luckily it turned out pretty good and I'll definitely doodle more often.
I chose 3 different papers for the balloons
One of the twine's I bought and an Epoxy Dot in the middle of the felt flower
So far I've used Valentine Billie for a Valentine, new baby and now a good luck card and I'm sure there are plenty more occasions she will suit.

We have been enjoying beautiful weather here since Saturday. On Sunday hubby, Nicole, Ryan and I went to Edinburgh for the day and had a lovely lunch by a canal. Yesterday Nic and I went to Troon with Ruby and Rocky. Here are a couple of videos I took....
This one made me laugh...do you think Nicole will be able to get her kids to do as she asks or will she always turn to me to do it lolololol???
There are exciting things happening at LCI Central next week which I don't think you'll want to miss so make sure you check back.
Time for me to make another card...thanks for stopping by.
Catch ya later x
PS Notice I didn't follow the challenge which was Pink +1 other color lol. Oops!!
